I think Americans having a personal security force at their beck and call might lead to some less-than-optimal outcomes.


And supposedly they were going to partner with the LAPD, but the LAPD refused to comment for the story.

A bit of background from a year ago:

What sort of “security force” are they talking about?

is this like regular rent a cops, or “private security” companies like Blackwater?

or to put it another way, is this Uber for Paul Blart or Uber for Rambo

Haven’t you noticed? Every “good guy with a gun” is, like, Rambo, and would stop any crime for sure and get you home alive

Seriously though, good question.

I imagine you order security through the app, and if there is a rent-a-cop nearby who’s not busy, or a 2A nut case in range hoping to get to shoot someone, they’ll respond and show up sooner or later. Unless you live in a fancy neighborhood where good tips are to be expected and the “danger” typically is a PoC out jogging, or walking their dog. There you’ll get prompt service.

Kind of like Foodora here I would expect. You can order, but you never know if it will actually get delivered, and if it does it will rarely be in a timely fashion.
